Sennheiser launches eight new headsets for iPhone, which are basically the headset versions of the company’s successful headphone models. The eight models include IE8i, MM80i TRAVEL, MM70i, CX880i, PX100-IIi, PX 200-IIi, HD218i and HD238i. All of them have in-line microphone and remote for receive/end call and music control.
The IE8i is the headset version of the high-end professional reference IE8 headphones. It features extremely lifelike sound reproduction and also allows individual fine adjustment of the bass to suit different listening needs. The MM80i TRAVEL, on the other hand, is ideal for frequent flyers and globetrotters.
The MM70i and CX880 are in-ear headsets. The MM 70i combines clear stereo sound and rich bass, while the CX 880i features a more balanced sound and an elegant, understated design. They come with six ear adapters made of silicone to guarantee an ideal fit.
PX100-IIi and PX 200-IIi and headset version of the original PX100-II and PX 200-II. The former has an open-back design while the PX 200-IIi with closed design shields against external noise and is ideal for use in somewhat noisier environments. Both of them are foldable. Sennheiser’s two supra aural headsets HD238i and HD218i feature an attractively puristic design in black and anthracite. The fomer is more balanced and the latter offers stronger bass.
The new Sennheiser models with a remote control function are compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPad, iPod nano (4th and 5th generation), iPod touch (2nd generation), iPod classic (120GB/160GB), and 2009 models of Macbook, Macbook Pro and Mac Pro.
